The discography of Rodney Crowell, an American country music artist, consists of 13 studio albums and 36 singles. Although he first charted on Hot Country Songs in 1978, he did not reach top 40 on that chart until 1981, with "Stars on the Water". His 1988 album Diamonds & Dirt produced five consecutive number-one singles, the only ones of his career.
